InFamous: Second Son Review

In 2009, Sucker Punch Productions released Infamous for the PlayStation 3. At the time, the PlayStation 3 was in a need of a killer app to play. While Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, and Uncharted: Drake�s Fortune was great games for the system. A game to help sales of the PlayStation 3 was rare. The original Infamous was one of the first must plays of the system. Now, with the release of the PlayStation 4, Sucker Punch hopes to do it again with Infamous: Second Son.

In Infamous: Second Son you play as Delsin Rowe, a tagger in a small town, in Washington. After an accident, he discovers that he has the ability to absorb powers through other conduits. As he tries to control his power, he comes across the head of the D.U.P and now, in order to save his friends, he must go into Seattle, Washington to try to bring the leader down. Infamous: Second Son is the best story in the series. Delsin is a likeable character who shows more emotion than Cole McGrath does. Once again, Troy Baker, who plays Delsin Rowe, shows why he is the best in the industry. Not only that, but the entire cast is excellent. I always felt I knew about these characters, and once you learn more about them in a comic book style fashion, the line between good and evil becomes blurry. There is no black and white here. It is fitting because the reputation system is back. You can be either a True Hero or Infamous. I completed the game on True Hero and it gave me powers that felt that being a True Hero made the game a bit easier. In my second play through, I am playing as Infamous and it seems harder. Maybe it is just me, but it is something I noticed.

Do not let the YouTube clips fool you, Second Son is stunning to look at, and it plays great. Infamous: Second Son is the best in the series. It does not do anything new, but it does offer what the PlayStation 4 can do. With interesting characters, a good story, solid controls, with great graphics the game is perfect for the new system. If you happen to have a PlayStation 4, Infamous: Second Son is worth checking out.
